ABOUT SOUVENIRS

Sometimes, regardless of origin or genre, key or style, production quality or time of day, a chord change played on a guitar has drugged me all up.

Souvenirs is a collection of nine original songs for those of us that like to drum on the dashboard and play air guitar. That person in the front row or in the greys up by the ceiling at Maple Leaf Gardens knows what I mean. We live for the moment when a friend says "listen to this!" We become detectives, researchers, collectors and curators from the first snippet of any song that banged a gong. Then there was the time it only took a single Spanish guitar and a microphone and we're off again chasing that sound well beyond the curve of the earth. I was there listening and playing along from my basement. I still have the souvenirs.

Getting up off the couch, meeting amazing new people with talent to spare and creating Savista to record what became "Business Or Pleasure?" was a thrill ride! These songs developed night after night and suddenly people were asking "who wrote this?". The songs varied in styles and instrumentation, but always came together to give us a unique voice. Some like the latin meets mediterranean grooves. Some like the R&B stylings. Some like the folky strums. Everybody loves Purple Shirt & Tie! It felt like love and even lust sometimes. Like the song says, "people come and go", but we'll always have these souvenirs.

I have friends in dark, loud places.

It was a thrill to work with @jamesbradshaw to release what would become "Paraiso" on the Phoenix label. (@phoenixmusicinc).  This deep house track (or can we coin the phrase Deep Casa"?), was a played as a free guitar expression over a pulse of music that called to Ibiza, Italy, and all those beach front club lovers like us. Since its release, it has gained a worldwide audience and the groove keeps playing from Moscow to Montreal and all around.

A picture is worth four versus and a chorus!
When @johnpineo posted a picture his son Ben had taken of him standing next to a field, the reflection on the guitar he is holding inspired a complete lyrical concept on the spot. After texting back and forth the song came alive rather quickly. Enjoy this lock down special and always stay well!
